I make sentimental glass keepsakes for people who have lost someone they love to help them keep their memory close to their heart.
See my Video:
This listing is for one bead including the bail or it can be strung through the hole for most designs.
Chose your favorite color. See the provided image to see some colors. Also see the designs I offer on my website or etsy, choose one of the designs I provide.
You may chose the following shape.
Several shape options are available:
- Tear Drop
- Flat Raindrop
- Flat Barrel
- Trillium (rounded triangle) aka reuleaux
- Flat Trillium
- Lentil (flattened rounded circle, like a lentil)
Small .5 - .75"
Medium .75 - 1"
Large 1 - 1.25"
x-Large 1.25 - 1.5"
Note; some shapes may not be able to make on the small size. Talk to Christina to see if she can make what you are wanting.
You can string through the hole on some shapes, or chose a bail.
BAIL: (or metal loop at the top):
Plated precious metals over zinc alloy.
Sleek: Gold, Silver, Copper
Ornate: Gold or silver
The beads do not come with a chain in this listing.
Remaining ashes will be returned to you with the carefully packaged bead. Only a teaspoon is sent to the artist, and only a small fraction of the teaspoon is used. Please label the plastic ziplock bag with your name and name of who's ashes are inside. Double bag the ashes just in case of leaking. Please be sure to check for the seal, make sure it is zipped tight. You may add more than one loved one's ashes in the baggie.
I can send you a collection kit containing a scoop, small zip-lock baggies, and instructions. You can simply use zip-lock baggies and a spoon.
If you have any emotional difficulty with collecting the cremains, please let me know and I can guide you and help you find comfort. If you absolutely have to, you can send the whole box to me and I can collect a sample for you.
While a small amount of hair is used, it is nict to have enough to handle. A small collection of clippings from a shaver or hair brush is enough, but it is appreciated if you can provide a tuft or sample of the hair. The more you provide, the more you will be able to see the bubbles and black carbon it creates. See the video here: http://togetheragainbeads.weebly.com/inclusions.html
Please send one teaspoon of the cremains double bagged in a padded envelope or box. Address will be given after purchase. Please send via USPS with tracking so you know where the package is when you need to.
If you are in a rush to get your memory bead, I can put a rush on it.
What ever it takes, place the order at the front of the line, wake up early, stay up late (within reason) I will do what ever it takes to get your bead to you ASAP. Please find the $20 etsy listing for the rush order.
*If you plan to scatter the remaining ashes, please keep one extra teaspoon of ashes in a safe place.
Just in case:
- Lost in the mail, and the artist did not get the ashes, or you did not get the bead.
- You want to order another bead
- Bead drops and breaks
- If it is not what you expected or ordered
